Household Hazardous Waste

KC Water operates the Household Hazardous Waste program, accepting household chemicals from residents and hazardous materials from city facilities. Professionals at this facility safely manage, recycle, and properly discard dangerous household products. Proper handling of these materials offers a safe method to rid one’s home and prevents waste from entering our rivers and streams.
